I honestly can't tell if it's really floating freely in there (she says she only scrapes the front, flat of the tanks.), or if it's simply on the walls and clinging to the bamboo. Even so, don't you supposed that in the wild there were mossy, muddy conditions in water? I don't think it would really hamper their swimming, and I also think that it probably wouldn't clog their gills. I could be wrong, but if it could, I'd think that bettas in general wouldn't have made it very far up the evolutionary chain. *shrug*

the water's brown. .____. algae doesn't grow to cover the whole bowl, unless you rarely change the water. even in direct sunlight, it takes a long while of NO water changes for algae to cover the bowl totally like in those pics. poor babies. Dx

I think the fact that there is so much algae and duckweed (which normally aren't problems in and of themselves) indicates that she is not doing apporopriate water changes. Those things are .5 gallons, so they need frequent 100% water changes. No way would there be so much algae and duckweed if she was doing the appropriate water changes.
